Just wondering when the 2012 LED Samsungs will be available in stores? Does anyone have any prices yet?

Thanks.

Also I found this link from lcdtvbuyingguide.com that already lists the features of the UN55E6000. Is this even legit?

It is usually some time in March, with the super high-end stuff following later.

I don't see any problems with that spec sheet...it was probably buried in some CES press release.

There will be no LED TV's from Samsung or anyone this year, they will all be LED backlit LCD's.

Ha... you knew what I meant, but I guess we are splitting hairs. I have the UN55D6000 as of now but will most likely swap it out for a 2012 model. Hoping the price wont be much more. I got my 55" for 1098 around black friday!

I am thinking of a 6000 series also. Either that or an LG. I'll have to see how they look in a store first though.

Unless you can provide a source from Samsung or LG, that is not true. Samsung has not commented on whether they r or arent bringing OLEDs this year. LG has stated since CES they r bringing out a 55" OLED by the end of the year. Possibly a 46" OLED could be in the works too.
For now though, since there is so much speculation no one knows what will happen.

I suspect the Samsung 55ES6000 to be around $1799-$1899(msrp not sale price). We will know for sure soon if its not already listed. Sonys prices were already listed, Samsungs will be next. The 55D6000 msrp was around $2099.

Yeah it was MSRP 2099 but I never once saw it for that price. It was always at least a few hundred less. Will this mean the ES6000 will actually be around 1399-1499? I will be getting from sam's club.

Actually it doesnt mean that as that is a sale price. New tvs dont always go on sale quick for all stores. May take a few weeks before you see stores with sale prices. The 55D6000 stayed at $2099 for the first few weeks. Not all stores can or do put them on sale right away.
The msrp will not be $1399 or $1499, sorry. It'll be more like I said. The first real big sale is usually in June(Fathers Day). That doesnt mean to say they wont be on sale before then, they will, just not as good as Fathers Day which usually have a couple hundred or more off.

I understand the MSRP will be not be 1499 but I just wondered if it would go on sale close to that not too long after they are in stores. I would rather not wait until Father's day.

I just bought a un65d8000 for a pretty decent price online...I figured the new flag ship E series won't be out until pssibly may/june...I think I am having some buyers remorse though now, as I am seeing places online stating "coming very soon to coming in May" Wonder if I should have waited....

I have been on my sammy plasma for over 4 years now so I figured it was a great time to purchase the 2011 flagship model from sammy now....But i'm seeing prices less then 5,000 for the new 65" E series coming, and I would not hesitate to pay that....

My new tv is supposed to be here next week. It includes all the freebies of course(glasses/bray player/wall mount) and I know it will be an awesome set, provided it's not plauged with the good ol sammy(flashlight/banding/uniformity issues)

We shall see....

what's the consesus here on the forums as far as release dates? Do these internet sellers drop prices the way they are doing becuase they are anticipating a new release shortly or do they always do this around this time of year?

I am really interested in the 65"e version but I wonder if Samsung will most likely hold off on the high end sets until later on in the middle of the year or q2? I know we are all speculating, but man I like the new sets functionality and don't want to be stuck with this new set I bought if these new 2012 models will be rolling out sooner then we think...

Last year the 65" followed not horribly far behind the 60" which sort of materialized out of thin air around March or April. Samsung weirdly failed to announce those models ahead of time and then they just showed up.

I would bet the new ES models will be out no later than May, and probably sooner (except the 75"). But I am guessing.

There is no difference in HDMI cables. If you can see the picture without visible dropouts or sparklies, the cable is working at 100%. No other cable will display a better version of that picture. You're simply wrong if you think there is a better digital cable than one that is already working.

Two weeks after introduction of my A model, stores were knocking 25% off list for a week or so. Possibly trying to generate foot traffic.

Check back on the threads to see when folks started getting new models.

The 2012 ES8000 Models went on sale on February 8th in South Korea and expected to go on sale world wide by the end of March.

http://www.hindustantimes.com/techno...e1-809375.aspx
"The ES8000 was unveiled in Korea on February 8 and is expected to arrive in stores worldwide by the end of March. Samsung did not provide pricing information."



I wanted to initially buy the 2011 D8000 model last year, and remember seeing them pop up on sites for sale as early as February. Different sizes came out on different dates. For example, Amazon shows when the item first went on sale: February 27, 2011- for the 55 inch model and March 20, 2011 for the 46 inch model.

As for prices, Retail Prices (MSRP) should be the same as last year, Aldo it has not been confirmed.


EDIT: Just ran to what appears to be a Review for the new model already, posted today, February 11th: http://www.trustedreviews.com/samsun...8000_TV_review

That review is interesting. I can't tell if they really improved backlight uniformity at all. The review's methodology of lowering the backlight doesn't suggest good things. Yes, that will reduce apparent flashlighting and even what you people insist on calling "clouding", but if there is non-uniformity, it simply means the picture will be non-uniform and dimmer... That's not a win.

Someone needs to actually look at one of these with the screen on to see if uniformity is improved. The affects of non-uniformity are not limited to seeing whiteness on dark/black screens. Yes, they are most apparent there, but that doesn't mean they don't only make those kind of screens look bad.

There is no difference in HDMI cables. If you can see the picture without visible dropouts or sparklies, the cable is working at 100%. No other cable will display a better version of that picture. You're simply wrong if you think there is a better digital cable than one that is already working.

Was in the market for a new Samsung 60 inch tv. Should I buy the 60D7000 now? Any thoughts on the benefits of waiting for the the new 60E7000? Will the "E" prices be much more than the current "D" prices?

My thought is that unless the 60D7000 is sold out, the worst case on waiting is a lower price on the D7000 and perhaps your desire to get the newer E7000.

Thanks Rogo. I use Apple TV for most of my content, so I am not sure how much I would benefit from the additional feature that the new E7000 would offer. Does anyone know how the D7000 handles video files? Can I plug a flash drive or small USB hard disk directly into the D7000 and watch avi, mp4 or VOB files? If not, will the E7000 offer this feature?

According to Camelcamelcamel.com, amazon started tracking the price of the samsung un55d8000 on Feb 27, 2011, but I don't think it was actually shipping for a few weeks. And it was a long while after that before stores like BestBuy got it in my area.

I just saw the new 4000 & 6000 EH model at HHGregg about an hour ago. Semi-matte screens and a very thick display/bezel. I love that they ditched their glossy display, at least with the 6000 series. The 6000 looked really good, and that's just the entry level model.

I can imagine people having issue with the thickness with these though. In comparison, the D6000 was super-thin. I'm curious what the other models will end up looking like. The casing looked sort of retro, like an old LCD. Really odd that they went in that direction.

You can see what I'm talking about with the side photo in this product page. The ES8000, seems super thin though. Still, I can't tell if the 8000 is glossy or not with the stock images.

That's crazy expensive for a 55". I think I'll make do with a 2011 60".

That wont be Amazons sale price, that's just the MSRP. Amazons price should be a bit lower once the item actually starts shipping.

I'm just talking out of experience when I've basically pre-ordered other electronics.
